The New Synagogue

  • Views 1240

The Jewish community in Berlin is represented in full by the New Synagogue, which houses a permanent exhibition on Jewish life and can accommodate up to 3,000 believers. Although the New Synagogue, as many of the monuments and churches in Berlin, has a history a little ‘troubled: was hit in 1938 during the Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, when the Nazis broke all the windows of Jewish neighborhoods, but not reported serious damage. The facade of the synagogue remained intact, but it took 50 years to rebuild the great golden dome, recognizable from afar and is currently visited. The windows of the sanctuary are very resistant to prevent theft and vandalism and looting.
